Educational visits

If you would like to visit a working farm with your school, Park Hill Farm offers a great venue on the Staffordshire – Shropshire – Cheshire border.  For the calendar year 2024, we have 12 free visits available on a first come basis, thanks to Natural England.

Our family farm in Shropshire has been developed in conjunction with a number of recognised education and support organisations to provide a safe visitor experience for all age groups and abilities.

Our staff are trained and experienced

The staff here at Park Hill Farm are DBS checked and have trained with the Children’s University for Staffordshire, Shropshire and Stoke, and the Sensory Trust.

We have also worked with the Countryside Educational Visits Accreditation Scheme (CEVAS) and the Sensory Trust through the Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF) project.

We specialise in educational farm visits

Visits to Park Hill Farm are safe, well-organised, risk assessed and enjoyable, giving students access to a range of fun and engaging experiences.

We have an indoor classroom, and the farm is ideal for teaching a wide range of curriculum modules, including ‘The Importance of Healthy Eating’ and ‘The-Gate-to-Plate experience’.

The farm is also a great place to explore subjects like science, maths, the environment, food and farming, global warming, pollution, business studies, rural development and marketing.

Younger children can enjoy seeing the animals, pond dipping and farm and woodland walks.

Top class facilities for all ages and abilities

We have special training in providing sensory visits for children and those with special needs or learning and behavioural difficulties.

The farm is adapted to provide wheelchair access to ensure everyone can enjoy the educational farm visit.

We also provide hand washing and toilet facilities to ensure a comfortable and safe visit for all.

We even provide home-cooked food!

We’re proud to serve meals for our guests, and in the summer the beautiful shaded lawn area can be used.

Let us know your needs, as we can even put on a barbecue using meat grown right here on our farm.

We’re well located for visits!

Our farm is near Market Drayton, which is convenient to get to from a range of towns and cities nearby, including Stoke, Crewe, Telford and Shrewsbury. You can get to us easily from Staffordshire, Shropshire,  Cheshire and The West Midlands, making it the ideal place to introduce students to the great outdoors.

We have plenty of room for cars and coaches to park.

We love hearing from our customers, so thank you for getting in touch about an order.

We spend  a lot of time looking after our wonderful animals, but we’ll be in touch with you as soon as we can.
